Is Cape May Point perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

Cape May Point is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

Cape May Point is a very car-oriented borough. 100.00% of residents commute to work in a private automobile rather than by other means, such as public transit, bicycling, or walking. This is because Cape May Point is a small borough , and most people who live here have to drive out of town for work, and the town population is not large nor dense enough to support an extensive public transportation system. Cape May Point has a lot of rural roads, and houses can be far apart. Many residents drive out of town for regular shopping trips as well.

As is often the case in a small borough, Cape May Point doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
